There is no subject in the world more vital to the future and sustainability of the planet earth for future generations than that of Waste Management and all that encompasses. Animals produce organic waste only. Human beings, in their ignorance and lack of foresight, have now created so much inorganic waste that the whole planet is suffering from pollution in the air, in the rivers and oceans of the world as well as on the land masses. This book deals intensively with every aspect of Organic and Inorganic Waste Management and explains how each type of waste must be correctly dealt with if mankind is to decrease the outbreak of disease, thereby ensuring that all inhabitants of the planet earth have a healthy future.
